Overview of this course and e-VOTECH e-Learning.
Rules and precautions while working with electrical equipment.
Matter, Energy, and Electricity
State the meanings of and the relationship between matter, element, nucleus, compound, molecule, mixture, atom, electron, proton, neutron, energy, valence, valence shell, and ion.
Conductors, Semiconductors, and Insulators
State, in terms of valence, the differences between a conductor, an insulator, and a semiconductor, and list some materials which make the best conductors and insulators
State the definition of static electricity and explain how static electricity is generated.
State the meanings of retentivity, reluctance, permeability, ferromagnetism, natural magnet, and artificial magnet as used to describe magnetic materials.
State, using the water analogy, how a difference of potential (a voltage or an electromotive force) can exist.
List six methods for producing a voltage (EMF) and state the operating principles of and the uses for each method.
State the meanings of electron current, random drift, directed drift, and ampere, and indicate the direction that an electric current flows.
State the definitions of and the terms and symbols for resistance and conductance, and how the temperature, contents, length and cross-sectional area of a conductor affect its resistance and conductance values.
List the physical and operating characteristics of and the symbols, ratings, and uses for various types of resistors; use the color code to identify resistor values.
Define a battery, and describe general maintenance procedures for batteries including the use of the hydrometer, battery capacity, and rating and battery charging.
Identify the term schematic diagram and identify the components in a circuit from a simple schematic diagram.
State the equation for Ohm’s law and describe the effects on current caused by changes in a circuit.
Given simple graphs of current versus power and voltage versus power, determine the value of circuit power for a given current and voltage.
Series and Parallel Circuits
Compute circuit and component power in series, parallel, and combination circuits
